We are excited that the Prince George’s County Public School Board of Education voted unanimously to adopt the Climate Change Action Plan Resolution committing to phase out fossil fuels from and go zero waste in PGCPS and to implement a Focus Workgroup to develop the Climate Change Action Plan. 

Thanks so much to Board Members Boozer-Stother and Jackson for introducing the resolution and for all of the help along the way from the Sierra Club Prince George’s County Group, Greenbelt Climate Action Network, Eleanor Roosevelt High School Sunrise Hub, Eleanor Roosevelt High School Environmental Defense Club, and Kenmoor Middle Global Squabblers.
